I have spent few nights in Bay Lodge, and everything was very nice. Frèdèrique the host was friendly and always ready to give us advices to sightseeing. Place very well cared and faboulous breakfast, a place of interest where is possible to rest. Lower Sky road is a wonderful place to enjoy wild Ireland.

Wow, I do not have enough wonderful things to say about this place. Fréderique was so kind and welcoming. Her home is gorgeous, the room was perfect, and what a beautiful view of the bay on the Sky Road.

What a lovely Bed and Breakfast! The host and hostess were kind and welcoming. Our room was absolutely beautiful with a nice sized bedroom en suite, and a view of the bay from our window. They even have a cat (which I appreciated because I was missing my own!) The breakfast was good. Easy to find. Highly recommended!

We spent one night in the B'n'B and had a great time there. The host was friendly and obliging. Our room had probably the best view of the house overlooking the bay. It was amazing. The room itself was reasonable for one or two nights and had everything you'd need. There was even a tray with a kettle and tea.... More
